For the short term, at least, the Fire will be without Argentine midfielder Sebastian Grazzini for Friday night's road match against Sporting Kansas City.
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Marco Pappa and Dominic Oduro scored in the first 26 minutes and the Chicago Fire earned a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew on Saturday.
The Fire hasnt made a formal announcement yet, but all indications are that veteran German defender Arne Friedrich will be back in the starting 11 for Saturdays home match against the Columbus Crew
The Fire have lost three straight matches across all competitions, and the absence of midfielder Marco Pappa likely was a factor in that disappointing turn of events.
This will be a long two weeks off for the Fire.
